As someone who travels a lot for business and is on a strict gluten-free diet, I find it incredibly difficult to find restaurants that understand the real concept of gluten free. They'll think, "Oh, we'll do chicken parm with gluten free pasta." Don't get me wrong, the gluten free pasta is great -- but obviously the breading on the chicken isn't. Vito's by the Water in Windsor was INCREDIBLE when I had lunch there last month. They were so great that I brought back my family (lunch had been a business meeting). I had the same experience both times -- just a very attentive staff and chef who ensured my dish was truly gluten free. My second visit is what really sealed the deal. The owner himself, Rob, came to my table to speak with me before preparing my dish. He explained in detail the ingredients in the dish the way it's normally prepared, then broke down in detail how he was going to adjust it to make it gluten free. He explained that the restaurant has a policy to ensure that gluten free food is truly gluten free, including preparing the food in a separate area of the restaurant. Don't get me wrong -- I know the owner won't be able to go to a table every time someone orders a gluten free meal. But it was wonderful and reassuring to know that the staff understands. It's nice to find a restaurant in CT where you can get one heck of a meal....and not have to worry.
